Lawn and Garden Battery by Autocraft.

These small engine lawn and garden batteries by Autocraft are a cost effective solution to your aging lawn tractor battery. These batteries are almost maintenance free. 300 cold cranking amps should make starting quicker and put less a strain on your starter. These batteries are fully charged and ready to be installed right from the store. A fresh battery will put less a strain on your entire electrical system. They are designed to prevent internal shorts from all the harsh vibrations and rough conditions presented by lawn and garden equipment.
You may want to purchase a small packet of battery terminal protector for use when you install your new battery.
I have also used these batteries in simple low amp hour appliances as a backup or replacement.

      Second one I purchased - the last one lasted 3 years. This was installed in a garden tractor that I also use in the winter to blow snow. Considering the heavy use, and harsh environment, that's pretty good in my book, certainly enough to make me want to buy it again

                      The battery provides superior starting capability as compared to the replacement battery that was installed in the machine. This new battery has 40 (+13%) additional cold cranking ampere capacity to better assure a quicker, more powerful start. It was a drop in replacement that took less than two minutes to install and connect.

This battery is listed as a U1 type battery. To ensure that you are replacing your battery with one that is exactly the same as what is coming out of your lawn tractor, please provide the Part No. off the battery and we can cross reference your battery to a compatible one.

                                      Is it possible to check battery water level even though it is maintenance free? If so, how do I safely remove top cover?

                                        With reference to your inquiry on the Autocraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA -part# U1-3, if the battery is labeled as "maintenance free," it is not designed to be opened. If it is low on fluid because of damage, it lost acid, not water. The electrolyte will be diluted if you bring it back up, and the cells will probably be unbalanced.
